Macron faces grilling in land of cheese

Bourgtheroulde, France (CNN)I’m sure you’ve heard the old bromide attributed to Charles de Gaulle, who wondered how it was possible to govern a country like France, with its 246 different kinds of cheese.

These days, Emmanuel Macron is discovering the complexity de Gaulle was talking about as he confronts the myriad demands of his constituents in an effort to mollify the “gilets jaunes,” or “yellow vest” movement.
He’s calling it Le Grand Débat — the Great Debate. A chance over the next two months for everyone in France to get their gripes off their chests.
